      COURSE ETIQUETTE:
      We reserve the right to disqualify anyone who exhibits unsportsmanlike conduct or is abusive to volunteers. Due to
      insurance regulations, no headsets, earphones, bicycles, baby strollers, roller blades or pets on the course.

      SAFETY:
      Aid and water stations will be provided, but in an effort to be greener, we require all runners to carry their own water, i.e., no cups
      at the aid stations. If you don't own a handheld, consider purchasing one; they're quite useful out on the trail. Otherwise a basic water bottle
      will be provided and handheld bottleholders will be available for purchase inexpensively. We also strongly recommend that anyone sensitive
      to insect stings or bites carry their own medication. Finally, we urge that everyone do some pre-race training offroad, as there is no substitute
      for experience. We want you to have a good time.
